Yeah Varlamov's glove hand is pathetic. Personally I think it just took the Pens a little longer to really recognize it and exploit it. But you have to remember, the Pens are full of offensive weapons. The rangers... not so much. Varlamov wasn't really tested in the rangers series, and had a load of confidence coming into the second round. His flexibility and dexterity helped him to own the net down low. But it just took a few games to expose his weakness. But I wouldnt exactly call Fleury's performance stellar. I mean he was good, considering the shooting power that the caps have at their disposal, but I wouldn't say their was a game that he "stole" from the Caps. He played well enough to allow the Pens offense to do the rest.
Oh and the unsung hero of this series was definitely Pen's D-man #4 Mark Scuderi. This guy is a beast at breaking up plays, blocking shots, and just always being in position and not getting burned. You could probably make a highlight reel of his defensive plays from this series alone. This poor guy will get no mention in the newpaper articles and blog posts tomorrow, but he deserves to be in the top 3 stars of the series for the Pens.
Ovi's checks are so fucking reckless. Thats the second time he took a huge run at Malkin that ended in Epic Fail.
